Senior Travel Specialist – Beach

About Dhiren

I have been organising family holidays for nearly 20 years and have visited most of the resorts in our beach portfolio. One of my memorable family holidays was at the Westin Resort Costa Navarino in the Peloponnese in Greece. The resort caters for any age from young infants to teens to adults with a variety of facilities. It ticks lots of boxes with the added bonus of the unspoilt beauty of the resort and its surroundings.

I’m here to ease the process and make your family holiday booking as stress free as possible. I know the success of a family holiday is in the detail. I’m here to ensure you book the perfect holiday, with a conveniently located beach with gently shelving shores and a wonderful kids’ club that they will love.

Talking points

Which are your top five must-see destinations for children?

Crete, Tenerife, Algarve (Portugal), Sardinia, and Peloponnese (Greece)

Do you prefer a villa, or hotel for a family holiday?

I think the best option is villas or apartments within a resort, giving families the best of both worlds when it comes to space and access to resort facilities

How do I satisfy the holiday needs of a teenager, a ten-year-old and a preschooler?

Take a look at several of our resort hotels. These carefully combine a programme that caters to all age ranges, whether it is a creche for pre-schoolers or learning experiences like cooking for teenagers

What is your advice to parents travelling with a young baby?

Make it as easy as possible by travelling light. Try to pre-order things you will need rather than take them. And look into babysitting facilities so that you can get a break too

What do you think is the best holiday ‘experience’ for children?

Keeping active and stimulated with children their own age. Many resorts try to offer learning experiences as well now such as how to make local dishes or learning about local flora and fauna
